What It's About:

A demo at the 2017 HPBZ

When framing houses today, the goal is to minimize thermal bridging and leave plenty of room for insulation, while still creating a strong frame that stands up to the elements and extremes. Learn how to do so during this presentation as we demonstrate and compare a standard framed wall with advanced, energy efficient framing that uses 20% less material.

What You’ll See and Learn:

Attendees examine the frame built at the 2017 HPBZ

  • Design on 2-ft. centers, single top plate framing and two-stud corners
  • Drywall clips and partition backers
  • How to use engineered lumber strategically
